Hamid Dabashi in Santa Fe

A couple of weeks ago, before I went to Mexico, I had the privilege of photographing Hamid Dabashi when he was in Santa Fe for a Lannan Foundation Readings and Conversations presentation. Dabashi spoke eloquently and with great depth of feeling about the history and modern politics of Iran, his native country. Dabashi, a professor at Columbia, shed much light on this remarkable country, which in the American media is too often presented in simplistic, monocrhomatic terms, as an evil empire of sorts. The podcast of Dabashi’s talk, and the conversation with David Barsamian that followed, is up on the Lannan website here. It’s well worth a listen.
